Let's Celebrate and XOXO Cards November 18, 2016 07:00

Hi everyone, 

Michelle here with two cards to share with you for card week!  I must admit I have only just really started making cards and don't make too many of them.  I am trying to make time to make more as they are so handy to have.

My first card I created was a birthday card.  I combined two cut files - I created my own doily from the Doilies cut file set as I love using doilies on my cards and layouts.  This file is great as it gives you four different options to choose from which makes it great value for money.    I then cut out the 'celebrate' from the Birthday Sentiments cut file set and added this to my card as well.

For my second card I have created a more generic card for a non-specific occasion which is great to have on hand for when you need a card.  I used the Stack Em Up Background file first cut on white cardstock with some patterned paper layered underneath it.   I also cut out a Dahlia Flower and when I added it to my card and layered on some embellishments it started to look a bit dream catcher like so I added some feather embellishments dangling at the bottom. I added the XOXO sentiment which really makes it a versatile card for lots of different occasions from birthdays to general thank you cards.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today - I hope you have enjoyed seeing all our cards this week.
